These two articles, which appeared as Chapter 5 (parts A and B) in Volume 4 of the Cambridge Medieval History (Cambridge, 1923), were written by the Syriac scholar E. W. Brooks ("The Struggle with the Saracens, 717-867") and the Byzantinist A. A. Vasil'ev ("The Struggle with the Saracens, 867-1057"). These are well-documented, very readable descriptions of four hundred years of warfare and competition between the Byzantine Empire and the Caliphate for control of Asia Minor, a struggle which fatally weakened both sides.
